A History of the Mario Tennis Franchise

Holding court

Mario and his Mushroom Kingdom chums are a talented bunch. They race karts and motorbikes, compete for medals in the Olympics, get into the swing of golf and more besides. They also, of course, play a bit of tennis - maybe it's for the exercise, the fashionable sportswear or to enjoy a post-match bowl of strawberries and cream...

I totally agree with pixelman I'am a fan Camelot's Mario games But the visuals haven't improved since the GameCube, I would hope that any New Mario Game's would look as good as SSB,Brawl have a large roster, WiFi,& be able to take screen shots for bragging rights.

Oh wow!! They are making mario tennis all over again...This one might be different because you might get to go online and play against two player or teams which is four or six or just two or nintendo can even make a tournament selecton... Maybe even T.P. for tennis points fron online and maybe just like in mk7 they will also have online *communities*but, this one might be different you might have a list of fc's but now u would probably wish nintendo had a like button and if you want to like the person their information would go on your list and nintendo should also install streetpass for when encounter a hit it automaticallysends their stats to the internet streetpass tag and it will hav a icon to show at thing their playing...Starter Characters: Mario
Baby Mario
Baby Peach
Donkey Kong

I'll be looking forward to this game. I just hope it isn't the same as Mario power tennis Wii and Gamecube version. It'd be a waste of money. But I suppose that it has online and etc it'll grab my attention to buy it.
